Bus safety. Wells Waggons manager Kimbra Wells has a message for children who use the school bus and their parents.
Children: Wait until the bus has passed before crossing the road.
And parents: Meet your children on the side of the road where they get off the bus, and cross the road with them. Don’t let children negotiate traffic, don’t put that pressure on your children.
Mrs Wells also reminded motorists that if a bus’s lights are flashing, the speed limit is 40km/h.
“We need to make it safe for children to use the bus,” she said.
Children who do not wait for the bus to pass before crossing will be given a yellow card to send home to parents.
